It looks fashionably distressed. Hipsters will be creaming themselves over it.

Actually selling for more, or just offered for more?

This particular B grade example has the added features of a dead disk drive and only one functioning RAM slot.

ive seens iBooks listed for 100+ that were in even worse shape. For example, Dead/failing/missing HDDs, Cracked/faulty LCDs, Broken hinge, missing keys, case cracks everywhere. that is some of the the worst i have seen. The only thing broken on my MDD is the front panel of the case but with the handles and feet on it stays in place fine.

The important question is, though, are they selling for that price?

I paid $60 including shipping for my iBook G4. It's a 1.25ghz model. I think that my 800mhz G3 "Snow" was about $25, albeit with no OS installed and no charger.

I see machines listed for hundreds of dollars because they include Adobe CS2 which is likely not a legal copy anyway. That being said, they almost never sell. In summary, you can price something however you want, but it doesn't mean it sells.

True, but it is certainly entertaining! It's amazing that people price items 10x what others are asking on the same site.

I got this for 99c. An iBook G3 with some scratches and a missing battery, but otherwise fukly working.

It was humbly listed as grade 'C', but looks good for such a low rating.

Yup, many listings have that, eBay puts it there as a stock description. Obviously it was written when the machine was new ;)

Really? Curious misuse of the word 'avail'. I have not seen it applied in that way outside of India. In fact, the rest of the blurb indicates a non-native speaker was behind it.

Yes, I even found the exact same item description on another listing with the same model input by the seller (but a different seller).

I agree the phrasing is weird. Other models have item descriptions phrased completely differently.
